Are you going to have to run a restrictor?

I believe a lot of those GT28 turbos have restrictors built into the CHRA. FM always used -4AN lines with their kits and no in-line restrictors, only relying on the internal ones, so if that's the case, you'll be fine.

Yeah, 10mm x 1.25 sounds small for the turbo feed opening. Most of the Mitsubishis are like 12mm x 1.5.

that sounds right.

if the oil feed line comes with swivel ends, it makes it easier to install. i had to use a 90* -4 an fitting off the 10x1.25 adapter on the gt25r i had.

i dont want to thread jack, but what length do the feed and return lines need to be. I'm getting ready to buy my ss hose and as much as this stuff cost I don't want to buy TOO much. I'll be using a begi manifold if that helps...

you'll want around 36-48"

Just take a bit of wire or string and kinda mock it out and see.
